Sadly, some people take on the task of estate planning following the diagnosis of a terminal illness. For some, reading about another person’s similar journey may bring a sense of comfort during this process. One such book was recently featured on NPR’s Fresh Air. Love & Death: My Journey
through the Valley of the Shadow by the Reverend Forrest Church offers readers a meditation on the end of life. As a member of Madison’s First Unitarian Society, this story caught my attention because Rev. Church is Minister of Public Theology for the Unitarian Church of All Souls in New York City. A link to the radio broadcast is available off of NPR’s web site.
